Steve Wright to get Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award


An iconic American comedian will be in Norfolk this summer to receive the Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award as part of the Viaero Great American Comedy Festival.

Festival leaders say Steven Wright will receive the award during the Festival Gala on Saturday June 15th.

Wright is known for his offbeat, deadpan comedic delivery.

Wright's comedy career began in 1979 and by 1982 he had captured the eye of Tonight Show producers.

Wright impressed Tonight Show host Johnny Carson so much that he was brought back on the show just a week later.
